Looks like Rosamund Pike has beat out her competition (Hayley Atwell and Alexa Davalos) to land the female lead in the upcoming Christopher McQuarrie adaptation of the Lee Childs book called ONE SHOT. The actress (who will also be in the upcoming WRATH OF THE TITANS) will star in the film alongside Tom Cruise about an ex-military man, Jack Reacher, who is drawn into the case of a military sniper who has been accused of murdering five people and may be involved in a major cover-up. Ms. Pike is set to play Helen Rodin, the lawyer who is defending the accused man and the daughter of Alex Rodin who is the District Attorney – look for that casting soon. Filming is set to start next month but the movie won’t hit screens until February 8, 2013.
I actually haven’t seen Rosamund Pike in anything since PRIDE & PREJUDICE, but I heard she had amazing performances in AN EDUCATION, BARNEY’S VERSION and MADE IN DAGENHAM. These are all of course on my must see list and I must get to them soon.
